Olle, I think you have some great points.  The first two lines of the
reviewboard is "There have been a couple of bugs reported lately
against the Berkeley DB version that Asterisk uses for its internal
database. These bugs have been tracked to the actual Berkeley code
Asterisk uses, which is very very old and unmaintained." which makes
me think that this is much more of a fix of a problem than a feature
add.  Including the SQLite3 should be licensed like the Berkeley DB
that is included in Asterisk.

Thats what I see.
